in. our white house correspondent dan lothian is in martha's vineyard where the first family is on vacation. dan, why did president obama decide to take this step this week? he canceled joint military exercises between the u.s. and the egyptian military. >> reporter: that's right. he did, brianna. and the main reason is because of the escalating violence on the ground in egypt which you have just been talking about. the president condemning that violence, condemning the actions of the interim military government there and the security forces, but also there's been this sort of level of frustration within the obama administration at the slow pace of the transition from this military interim government to a democratically elected civilian government. the obama administration, at least officials within the administration, had been discussing this as an option. in fact, back in june at the time that the administration decided to delay the delivery of those f-16s, it was brought up as an option to pull out of these biannual exercises known as bright star, but it was only on wednes
on martha's vineyard with another round of golf. the white house sending deputy press s josh ernest to the cameras to condemn those attacks before secretary of state john kerry made the following remark. this sounds a lot like an endorsement of the muslim brotherhood and their leader of choice, mohamed morsi. >> these events are deplorable, and they run counter to egyptian aspirations for peace, inclusion, and genuine democracy. the egyptians inside and outside the government need to take a step back. >> kerry's surprise appearance at the state department briefing marked by his hubs that egypt parties can work out a diplomatic solution. this as the obama state department refuses to claim that egypt is now embroiled in a civil war or that the military takeover could be described as a coup. we're looking at an administration that still has not defined what has happened in a foreign nation over a month ago since this president was removed from office or how they plan for that matter to preserve american interests in that region and nation. fox news chief washington correspondent james
for egypt. >> so the president breaks a vacation, makes an address from martha's vineyard on thursday. talk about what he said. are we doing the right thing? are we doing enough? >> i would have called it a coup six weeks ago. in terms of democracy in the middle east has been -- that credibility has been lost. that said, the united states is going to have influence only on the margins. perhaps it can draw boundaries around which the military has to operate. by not calling it a coup, we signal we're going to learn with whatever ultimately emerges in terms of a new government in egypt. >> p.j., if we were to label this a coup, that would mean we would have to stop funding any sort of military aid, any sort of humanitarian aid support to egypt. is that true? >> well, it is true. that's why the administration has largely decided they're not going to decide. and barring some sort of horrific -- >> what is that getting us right now? the money that we are supplying to egypt, what is that doing for the united states's interests there? >> well, the united states looks at the egyptian military as the
. >> you know, i want to go back to the president's news conference martha's vineyard, took time out from his vacation to denounce the violence we've been showing on our screen. what he didn't denounce were the attacks on coptic christians and these christian churches, the coptic pope is in hiding, a great many christians as well. and yet no denouncetion from this president. why is that? >> you know, gregg, i actually think the president did a good job this week in martha's vineyard when he talked about this issue. we didn't come out and say that the islamists won the election and they should be in charge. that's a good movement from this president. i think it's a very difficult time when you have so much violence going on and you have to remember that he was speaking right after many people, 600, 7 ooshgs 00, 800, are being reported killed. he should have said the violence against the christians in egypt is absolutely unacceptable as well, but i think he got it right in balance and that hew l denounce that violence against the christians. but let's be clear. there's violence going on on
supporters of the muslim brotherhood this week alone. we go live to martha's vineyard where president obama continues his vacation. any sign from the administration of what they will or even perhaps what they will not do next? >> well, craig, good afternoon. the administration at this point is not signaling any major shift in policy when it comes to egypt. we know that president obama has been briefed daily by his national security adviser susan rice, who is vacationing here on martha's vineyard with him. and of course this past week president obama announced that he would be canceling joint military operations between the u.s. and egypt that were scheduled to take place next month. this was a strong, symbolic rebuke to military for their inability to really get this situation under control in egypt and to get the unrest under control in egypt. but what the administration has not announced is that they will be withholding or withdrawing that $1.3 billion in military aid that they give to egypt every year, and that is really the united states' largest point of leverage at this point in time.
the president this week and he was speaking from martha's vineyard he did not mention the aid but did say the u.s. government is canceling its military exercises. is that a big deal or not? it seems like the military is occupied at the moment. and not exactly -- >> right. >> well, this is a biennial exercise so every two years. the last time it was held bright star was in 2009 because in 2011, they also had their hands full with the revolution and couldn't do it. in some ways, you can say it's symbolic and other ways it allows us to understand how the other side works. many countries participate in it. just a slap on the wrist. what's real is if they're considering, for example, they've stopped giving the f-16. they put that on hold. if they decide to stop giving other hardware, if they're not really letting aid flow since july 3, since this ouster, that's the bigger question. and we'll have to see where it goes. if things get worse, they're not going to be able to continue with the policy they have right now. that's my prediction. amy: thank you very much for that. here at home, a decision by

of these difficult issues but again i want to go back to what president obama this this week in martha's vineyard i thought was very good because he didn't take the bait on immediately siding with the islamist government like he had done before. >> i agree. all right. rick, thank you so much. >> any time, dana. >>> straight ahead, it is not the wiener mobile you're used to seeing and you may want to keep your kids away from this one. that's next. went with axiron, the only underarm low t treatment. axiron can restore t levels to normal in about 2 weeks in most men. axiron is not for use in women or anyone younger than 18 or men with prostate or breast cancer. women, especially those who are or who may become pregnant and children should avoid contact where axiron is applied as unexpected signs of puberty in children or changes in body hair or increased acne in women may occur. report these symptoms to your doctor. tell your doctor about all medical conditions and medications. serious side effects could include increased risk of prostate cancer; worsening prostate symptoms; decreased sperm count; an
